Defining ankyloglossia: A case series of anterior and posterior tongue ties
Anterior ankyloglossia is much more common and readily managed when compared to posterior ankyloglossia. Posterior ankyloglossia is a poorly recognized condition that may contribute to breastfeeding difficulties. The diagnosis is difficult due to the subtle clinical findings but relevant health care providers should be aware of this condition. Frenotomy is a simple, safe, and effective intervention for ankyloglossia which improves breastfeeding.
